A true life story of losing a teenage son in the prime of his life.

JAGS is an acronym of James Andre Godfrey Smartt-Ford, and a youth focused organisation, set up by James's mother, Tracey Ford, following his tragic murder.


James  was attending  a  friend's birthday party inside Streatham Ice-skating Rink, on a busy Saturday evening, when he was shot in front of over 300 people. He did not live to see his 18th birthday.  

Through the delivery of co-educational and life  skills training for young people in local  communities, JAGS works across neighbouring South London Boroughs including Croydon, Lambeth, Merton and Wandsworth to raise awareness, build resilience of parents and children through community cohesion.
